Dela May Haley
The five-year-old daughter of Mr. And Mrs. Will Haley, living in the Hopewell district,
died Thursday from the effects of being burned. The little girl was trying to put out a
fire on the carpet that was caused by a piece of burning wood falling out of the stove, and
her dress caught fire and she was soon enveloped in flames. She lived but a few hours and
was in terrible agony. The funeral was held at Hopewell Church Friday afternoon.
